I am from Illinois! What I've noticed about the St. Louis accent is that
sometimes words like "before" sound like the person is saying "be-FAR."

Apparently, some traces of the traditional St. Louis Corridor dialect
linger on.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
